From the combox of Phaser's recent "The Unliterate Hallq blog post:
I'm really starting to wonder if there is some organization funding the idiocy of these New Atheist types. They can't really be that stupid can they? Oh, please tell me they're just play-acting for a check...
It happens. But then the televangelist industry is funding the idiocy of faith beyond reason and other cognitive absurdities among contemporary believers in God, and this is influencing people in other religions besides Christianity. Yikes.
Most people in general---theists, atheists, agnostics, and so on---are epistemically schizophrenic, and therefore intellectually and philosophically insane.
